I showed you the front entrance of this beautifully restored building in December (here) and luckily the building was part of the Doors Open Toronto event of a couple of weekends ago. This is the approach to the rear entrance of the building showing the tower which originally had a dome housing a telescope for the Meteorological Service of Canada but the dome was removed in 1934 and installed at another location on the U of Toronto campus. I'll show you some of the restored and modernized interior over the next few days.

P.S. I have fixed the link to the original shot.
It has a definite lighthouse feel to it Pat, which makes it even more appealing to me :)
I just love the concept of Open Doors, we are seeing such great spaces through your eyes.
I love towers in old buidings. It's beuatifully restored!
well, that explains the castle-like feature. :)
Great looking brickwork, is it possible to stand where the dome once stood? Would make a great vantage point if you could!
Beautiful with the round structure.
What a wonderful building...love all that stone. But the tower is absolutely magnificent. I'll be looking forward to seeing some interior shots.
Such a beautiful building; nice restoration!
I love that we went to different places so I can still get to see some of the ones I miss each year. Now I just have to get around to posting something about my stops!
It reminds me of a lighthouse, too. I love the brickwork.
A solid tower with great presence as part of the building! Love that elongated glass feature on the tower!
interesting architecture. i like the phrase "doors open"
sounds as though it's an interesting place
Great looking building, wonder if the tower rooms are round inside....
Totally agree Fallsview commercials are horrible!!
An impressive building!
Definitely looks nice from the outside. I need to show some of my shots from the Open Doors. I thought this was the best one yet, there were so many places to see this year!
This building appeals to me. I look forward to seeing more.
Nice looking building.

OH! This is a place I would have LOVED to have seen the inside of!
